Book Description

A Wall Street go-getter surprises his wife with a birthday gift beyond her wildest dreams - a fixer-upper house in Brooklyn, where in the course of their renovations a metal box stuffed with cash falls from the ceiling. Where did it come from? Whose is it? Those questions will be answered in an overnight drama that’s also a journey into the past, and the horror of 9/11. It's a saga of love, lust, greed, double-crossing, prison, betrayal and redemption on that long, crooked road to the truth. Found money looks like easy money, but looks can be deceiving.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Read February 11, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've read all of Charlie Carillo's books and have NEVER been disappointed. Each and every book throws you right into the story; and the characters are all exceptional in how they are written. Unlike many books where someone may tell you to get through the first 50 pages, Carillo's books whisk you into a storyline so quickly that you won't want to put the book down. Found Money is no exception.

I'm always excited to see when a new Carillo novel is published because I know I will have at least a couple of days of good reading before I finish it and am left waiting again.

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly Enjoyable August 10, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I say "surprisingly" because I've read quite a few of these free Kindle books and have not enjoyed, or even made it through, the bulk of them. I will say that the book started kind of rocky for me. I was having trouble getting into Artie, especially since he was supposed to be 25 years old, but some of the descriptions made him sound older. For example, in the beginning of the book Artie was checking himself out in the car and thinking about how his waist was still trim and he still had his hair and that sounded more a 35 or 40 year-old. At first I thought the writer was very young and viewing 25 as very old, but after reading the writer's bio I realized that he is older, and that he might be a little out of touch of what a 25 year-old would be thinking when he looks in the mirror. It may seem minor, but it took me out of the book.

Once I got past that I began to get more into the story and it really took off with Ritchie's arrival. I found all of the characters interesting, engaging and I can't wait to see how it all resolves.

So far, Richie is my favorite and I keep picturing Benedict Cumberbatch as the poet. I don't want to go too much into the story and spoil it but I will say that you might expect this to be a crime caper, but it is actually a really interesting character study. And while Artie starts off as a really annoying jerk-wad, he becomes more human and likeable as the story progresses.

I am still a few chapters away from the end, but I liked it enough that I felt the need to write a review. I'm interested in seeing what else this writer has to offer.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun, quick read March 11, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is an enjoyable little book, generally well written and briskly paced. The pat outcomes for a couple of the characters prevents me from giving five stars but I recommend the book and will certainly check out more from the same authors.

Enjoyable but definitely not a page turner. I enjoyed Charlie Carrillo's descriptions of his characters he makes them very real

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun Read November 15, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book was a fun read; however, the only complaint I have is too much foul language. I think the story line would have been just as good without using the bad language. Just look at John Grisham -- hardly uses a bad word and all his books are best sellers. Just think about it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Found Without Money January 31, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I must admit I am a great fan of Carillo. I love the way he builds his characters and the humour in his tales. I was over the moon to find this free for kindle as had just finished reading God Plays Favourites. There is always a moral to his stories, a good dose of humour and characters you wish you could meet. Another winner, a very good read.

2.0 out of 5 stars if not for the language March 14, 2014
By akh
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was an engaging, emotional, and entertaining novel. I both laughed and cried. There was the right amount of suspense woven into the human interest portion. I wanted to recommend it to everyone.....however, the frequent and totally unnecessary foul language kept me from doing so. I kept skipping over paragraphs and/or pages where it was especially pervasive, so missed portions. Even if a reader were not offended, it was so repetitive that it at times took away from the impact of the story line and conversational dialogue. It seemed unnatural. The book had many great moments; it is unfortunate that the language interrupted the flow. I would have enjoyed reading more from this author.
